Doc says after a week you can resume physical activites, but may be in moderation for 'a while'. but realistically what is the recovery time to be able to do 2 hr hammer fests & all day rides? is a 8 hr race 6 weeks out an absolute no no?

Is it a week off then a light week, then rebuild the legs cause teh discomfort is no longer an issue or is this something that should only be done in Nov-Feb?

I'm not a serious racer so performance is not really a factor. no matter what I do I'm gonna be mid pack sport. I do it for fun.

Thanks

You should be able to be back in the saddle after two weeks for an easy ride and within a month riding like normal. Enjoy those Percocets!

I was riding at regular pace one week after, but I did take a weeks vacation after the procedure and did not get out of the lazy boy for 4 days. Had a friend ride 3 days later (60 miles) and then spent 3 weeks off of the bike.

I was back on my bike after a week, but couldn't ride like normal (intensity and duration) for about a month. Felt like I'd been kicked in the balls for 2 solid weeks, and the percocets didn't make the pain stop, they just made me not care.

whatever you do, make sure that your old lady helps clean out the pipes. that should be an exhibit-A for the wife to sign on the consent form.

I must be a wimp b/c I was in the lazy boy for 3 days with ice and couldn't stand up straight for 8 days. Still got a big ugly purple puddle in the bottom of my goody bag.:eek: I only got loritabs and they made me sick so I just tuffed it out and threw those suckers away. Thank God for ibuprofen. No biking for about a month. Don't get in a hurry. You will regret it.
